Gate of Heaven, Part II: Patron of the Universal Church consists of fifteen hymns. The opening hymn is a Hymn to Saint Joseph, followed by Mary, Mother of the Church, a Magnificat, People of God, and a rendering of the ancient Alma Redemptoris Mater, Loving Mother of the Redeemer. You Alone is based on Psalm 16, with The Lord is My Light (Psalm 27), If I Could Take the Wings of the Dawn (Psalm 138), and Know that the Lord is God (Psalm 99) among the featured psalmody. Rejoice, O Mary, Queen of Heaven uses text drawn from Pope John II’s Redemptoris Mater, and People of God is reflective of Lumen Gentium, one of the documents promulgated by the Second Vatican Council.
